Where does our Empath Gifts come from?
I believe that we are born with it, so it would be our Maker
Very interesting that you and I both see the flash-card effect of people faces when meditating or sleeping. Your example of a yearbook photo matches up well with how I see people. And then it's interesting that you see animals in random patterns or wood grain, and I see angry gargoyle like creatures. I appreciate what everyone has posted on this subject to help explain it. But I am still trying to interpret the meaning and how I should react when I see things? Is it a warning, is it a sign? Same for you. If you see a snake or wolf that are predators, how do you interpret that? There must be a reason why we see things and when we see things. In my case, and probably yours as well, it's not like these almost look like something. The way I view it, these are very clear creatures faces.
I have something similar happen often. When I lie in bed at night I often try to meditate. And before I drift off to sleep I will see movies of people I don't know or what I call flashcards of people's faces. In the flashcard phase I basically will see a person's face for about 3 seconds and then it flips to the next one until I go through a couple dozen. I have no idea what it means. And when I see the little movie clips as I call them they can be in color in black and white. But I do have to be in a relaxed meditative state in order for either to happen. And I am always observing and not part of what I see.
In your case it sounds like you are interacting with your visions. That sounds more like past life regression.
The only history in my family is my grandmother, who supposedly was diagnosed with schizophrenia at one time but never took medication for it. I believe she is actually gifted and I may have received some of her traits in my genes. But she doesn't see herself that way. She doesn't acknowledge it at all. I am the first known empath in my family. Part of the reason why I struggled for so long before realizing it :)
still my favorite version not the one mccarthy & milano replaced it with, i put natalie portman into the video with a blonde wig isnt she perfect? and still just outtakes left with me doing a rare performance as the smiths frontman (smile:
